Weekend Freezer Dinner: Veggie Burgers

On "fend for yourself" nights (Friday-Sunday), all of us hit the freezer for quick and easy meals. We buy Money's Garden burgers regularly; but who says that because they're veggie burgers they have to be plain? This is our version of a stacked veggie burger-"YUMilicious!", as Jake would say! Not too sure about veggie burgers? In this version, you won't miss the meat at ALL.

Serves 4

4 whole wheat burger buns
1 package of Money's Gardenburgers (there's 4 per package)
1/3 cup roasted red pepper hummus
1 avocado, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
1 medium tomato, sliced
baby greens (or other lettuce that you like)
1 cup sliced mushrooms

Heat a little olive oil in a pan and add the onion, cooking and stirring until golden. Add the mushrooms and saute until soft. Remove from pan and set aside. Add a little more oil to the pan, and add the frozen veggie burger patties. Cook according to package directions-until hot and crisped on both sides.

Meanwhile split the buns and place under the broiler to toast. When they are golden, remove to plates and spread approximately 1 1/2-2 tbsp of hummus on each bottom bun. Top with patty, and then onions and mushrooms.

On the top bun, spread a small amount of mayo, and then layer the greens, tomato, and avocado.

Squish it all together and eat!
